I have a page on the website that is for my readers to tell their dog story. My hope was to have people tell their story so it might help someone else with the same problem. But lately there has not been any activity on this page. Could you please look at this page and contribute something if you can.

5 Answers to Frequently Asked Questions About Dog Care
If you have a dog, you have one of the best gifts life has to offer. And when those big beautiful eyes look up at you adoringly, you are super motivated to provide the absolute best life your dog can possibly have.
Here are 5 answers to frequently asked questions about caring for dogs that will help you and your dog enjoy a long and happy life together.
1. How often do we need to visit the vet? Regularly scheduled appointments for adult dogs are scheduled annually. These visits give shots that prevent Bordetella, Leptospirosis, Parvo, Rabies, and Lyme Disease among others. The veterinarian also does a general check of eyes, ears, heart, teeth, and coat to make sure that there are no indications of underlying problems.
2. If an emergency situation arises after hours, what should we do? Fortunately there are many wonderful emergency vets that are only open after hours for just such emergencies. Often the message you receive when calling your vet after hours will give the name, location, and phone number of nearby emergency vets. But don't wait until you need one to ask.
3. What kind and how much food is best? This will depend on the breed of dog you have selected. If your dog is healthy and does not have dietary or health issues, feed a high quality food that is low on preservatives and fillers.
4. What frequency of bathing is best? How often you give your pooch a bath depends on the kind of dog and its lifestyle. If your friend spends a lot of time outside and rolls in things it shouldn't, baths will probably need to be more frequent. If your companion is a lap dog, fewer baths will suffice.
5. Do we need to give heart worm pills in the winter? Yes, heart worm pills should be given once a month every month regardless of weather or location.
